Gendarmerie Overhauled [NIA]


Total replacement faction for the Tanoan Gendarmerie Police forces, expanding the unit roster and adding more units and vehicles to the faction.
It works in the official Arma 3 Apex Campaign and custom scenarios that use the Gendarmerie faction will be using the new faction as well. This version uses NIA weapons, a Vanilla version is also available.

The Faction-
The Gendarmerie form Tanoa's Police force, and were the local law enforcement agencies on the Horizon Islands, and they have been expanded to counter the rising illegal drug and weapons trading from the Syndikate cartel groups. The primary police patrol weapon is the HK MP5A3, with the SIG P226 being the primary sidearm. The police patrols lack armor and heavier weapons, relying on the rapid response teams for support in firefights.

Historical Info-
Tanoa's origins as a former French colony in the South Pacific means that it has the Gendarmerie, who form the islands police and security forces. The Gendarmerie is a kind of Military Police force, and it's mixed bcakground means they often have better training and equipment compared to a purely civilian force. The primary languages are French and English. Following natural disasters there was a large spike in criminal and drug trafficing in the area, resulting in increasing military like roles in the police, from the formation of a rapid response SWAT unit to the eventual deployment of NATO and British forces to the islands to maintain order.

Specialist Elements-
The Rapid Response units, who are Tanoa's SWAT type element, are heavier armed and armored than the police patrols, and carry the HK416 and MP5A3.
They wear distinctive black body armor and equipment and are much more useful in combat situations compared to the lightly equipped patrols.
The Response team also has Marksmen and Sniper units available if needed, armed with a 20 Inch DMR version of the HK416 rifle.

The natural disaster, and rising crime, has attracted international media attention from Australia, the UK and the United states, so journalist teams and their bodyguards are found as support units. The Gendarmerie are supported by Police Offroads, MRAPS, Police speedboats and light helicopters.
Medical trained units can be used to treat the wounded in the aftermath of any combat.

Faction has full Editor, Zeus and ALiVE support (faction name BLU_GEN_F ) Also supports ACE3 Medical system.
It totally replaces the BLUFOR Gendarmerie faction in editor, Zeus, ALiVE and all scenarios played when the mod is enabled.
